Apple’s New iPhone To Come With Improved Display, 512MB RAM, Bigger Battery
Fresh reports from Taiwanese publication DigiTimes notes that Foxconn, the manufacturer of the next generation iPhone has been contracted to ship close to 24 million units of fourth generation iPhone for 2010. Of these, 4.5 million units are expected to be shipped in the month of June alone.
According to DigiTimes analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, industry sources have provided several interesting details about the upcoming iPhone.
DigiTimes reports that Apple's new iPhone will come with new features that will aid in improved e-book reading capabilities. For instance, the iPhone 4G display will include an In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology that is presently available on the iPad. IPS will provide superior viewing angles on the iPhone's LCD display. Also, the display will be equipped with Fringe-Field Switching (FFS) technology, which will improve the visual quality of the display under sunlight as well as offer a much wider viewing angle.
DigiTimes also reportes several other enhancements in Apple's new iPhone. According to them, industry sources have confirmed earlier reports that iPhone 4G will include a 960×640 double resolution display. Also, the display panel is said to be 33% thinner over the panel on iPhone 3GS, which will consequently offer more space for the battery module inside the handset. The display screens are reported to be manufactured by LG Display and Prime View International.
The latest report however contradicts those published on a Vietnamese site last week where it was noted that the new iPhone will come with Apple's A4 processor and 256MB RAM. The DigiTimes report claims that the next generation iPhone will include an ARM Cortex A8 processor equipped with a 512MB RAM from Samsung.
Apple is expected to unveil the next generation iPhone on June 7 at the WorldWide Developers Conference 2010 Keynote address and might also go on sale the same day. It will be interesting to see if these new features indeed make it to the fourth generation iPhone, which is also dubbed iPhone HD.
